A beautiful coin ring boasting the phrase Molon labe

Two little words. With these two words, two concepts were verbalized that have lived for nearly two and a half Millennia. They signify and characterize both the heart of the Warrior, and the indomitable spirit of mankind. From the ancient Greek, they are the reply of the Spartan General-King Leonidas to Xerxes, the Persian Emperor who came with 600,000 of the fiercest fighting troops in the world to conquer and invade little Greece, then the center and birthplace of civilization as we know it. When Xerxes offered to spare the lives of Leonidas, his 300 personal bodyguards and a handful of Thebans and others who volunteered to defend their country, if they would lay down their arms, Leonidas shouted these two words back.

We have adopted this defiant utterance as a battle cry in our war against oppression because it says so clearly and simply towards those who would take our arms.

It signifies our determination to not strike the first blow, but also to not stand mute and allow our loved ones, and all that we believe in and stand for, to be trampled by men who would deprive us of our God-given – or natural, if you will – rights to suit their own ends.

Outer band design: Made Obverse (Heads) side out with "Molon Labe" and "Come and Take Them"

Band Width: 11.8mm to 12.5mm (Will vary dependent on ring size)

Sizes: US 10 - 16

Finishes: Highly polished (Shiny), Combination (blackened only around the details and everything else polished)

Metal Content: 99.9% Fine Copper - This ring has a high copper content and may tarnish your finger (green staining). Although relatively harmless, it can be annoying. To help prolong this from happening, these rings are sealed using a clear jewelers grade industrial strength sealant. The sealant may wear off with daily wear as rings see a lot of "action" than most jewelry. Please see our care instructions located in our FAQ on how to help prolong your coin jewelry life.

I suggest having your fingers professionally sized prior to placing your order. I use professional jeweler tools so there are no mistakes. All rings come with lifetime resizing, 1 size up or down (only if within sizing range) FREE. All you are responsible for is shipping to and from my shop.
We gently tuck your item into a tin clear top gift box ready to be gifted as soon as your package is opened. Your purchase also includes care instructions that will provide you with the details to help make your items last a lifetime. For ring purchases, a Buckskin polishing cloth is also included so you can keep that vibrant shine with just a gentle wipe.
Due to the process of turning a coin into a ring a taper or cone shape will be present. The reeded edge or factory edge as I call it is much thicker than the center of the coin, which once punched and folded, the center becomes one side of the band. You cant ever remove the taper fully. However, you can shape the ring so that the taper is hidden within the inner band. I size my rings using the reeded edge then slowly raise the thinner center edge so that the taper is now on the inner band and once placed on your finger, the taper is completely hidden. The taper can be seen only if you are looking from the punched center edge towards the reeded edge, otherwise it is hidden. This causes one side of the ring to be a bit larger than the other
All orders will take 1-3 weeks to create once your order is placed. Please keep this in mind and plan your orders accordingly if it needs to arrive by a certain date. We always do our best to process orders as quickly as possible and if we can lessen this time, we do.

All International packages are sent USPS First Class International with insurance as my standard shipping method. However, faster services are offered at additional costs.
